From the Back Cover

Beneath the splendid riches of the Paris Opera House lie ancient catacombs with a dark and forbidden secret. Once used as torture chambers, these passages now house the Opera Ghost (Lon Chaney), vowing vengeance on the human race and obsessed with young opera ingenue Christine (Mary Philbin). Featuring terrifying make-up and gothic setpieces which remain thrilling today, this spine-tingling, macabre masterpiece can now be viewed in all its grand guignol glory. Utilizing the best 35mm print of the 1929 reissue from the George Eastman House and material from the UCLA Film and Television Archive, this stunning video master features a magnificent orchestral score by Carl Davis (Napoleon) and a stunning restoration of the Technicolor masked ball sequence! 2-Disc DVD Collector's Set! Includes Two Versions! 1925 Original Feature (110 mins.) with a Score by Jon Mirsalis, 1929 Restored Version (98 mins.) with Two Soundtracks by Carl Davis (stereo) and the Original Theatrical Soundtrack (mono).
